Unwanted Extra Days In Tempe

As those of you following my Twitter feed probably know by now, I'm going to be in Tempe for a couple of extra days. Lisa pickup truck broke down just after she left the hotel (and I'd left for the airport). She nursed the truck and its wobbly wheel back to the hotel. People managed to track me down at the airport. The hotel was willing to on my verbal say-so reopen the reservation and check her back in for two nights (we assume that nothing can be done in less than two days even if we can find someone who can fix it tomorrow morning). I'll be heading back to the hotel in a few minutes -- it was a 25-minute wait for the next shuttle, so I decided to stay in the air conditioning for a few extra minutes. I hope to be able to borrow a microphone for my computer so I can do the conference calls I have tomorrow morning. I'll need to get some work done remotely from here or else take an emergency day or two off from work and I don't have a lot of spare time in my account right now.

My luggage went on to OAK without me and will be locked up for me to come claim it. Unfortunately, that includes my CPAP machine and all my spare clothes. Should be an interesting couple of days. Probably will have to buy a new shirt tomorrow. And the charger for my phone was in that bag as well, so I have no way to recharge my phone, which is showing zero reserve now, so don't expect to reach me by phone for a couple of days.
